Begin by chopping the potatoes and carrots into chunks.
The broccoli should be cut up into bite-size pieces and the lotus root into thick quarters.
Place all the vegetables into a steamer and sprinkle on the consomme before steaming.
If you do not have a steamer, use a microwave at 600W and while keeping an eye on it.
When using the microwave, a little water should be poured on the lotus roots and carrots, and the plate or bowl should be lightly covered with plastic wrap. This will allow the veggies to steam properly. After steaming, add salt and you’re done.
